Here’s how to not starve in survival mode!

If you're playing LEGO Fortnite in survival mode with hunger toggled on, then your character would start to get hungry after some exploring and adventures.

How hunger works in LEGO Fortnite

When you enter a LEGO Fortnite world that's in survival mode, check the top-left corner of your screen. This is where your hearts are located. Right next to these hearts is a circle that starts off as green before it slowly turns to yellow when you get hungry. Then, if you are starving, then the circle turns red.
